Director Biography - Natasha Cantwell

Spanning music video, fashion photography and art projects, Natasha Cantwell’s work openly embraces awkwardness while drawing from the absurdity of human behaviour. Her 16mm experimental films have screened at festivals and exhibitions worldwide, including Experiments In Cinema in the U.S. and the European Media Art Festival and Stuttgart Filmwinter Festival For Expanded Media in Germany.

Holding a Bachelor of Graphic Design and a Postgraduate Diploma in Art and Design from the Auckland University of Technology, Cantwell has guest lectured at Unitec and the Manukau Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand. She has also presented at Semi Permanent Design Conference in Sydney, Australia as the senior photographer for Frankie Magazine.

Alongside her art practice, she produces and curates for festivals and galleries, including the Auckland Underground Film Festival, Channels: The Australian Video Art Festival and the Victorian Archives Centre Gallery. She is currently based in Melbourne, Australia.

Director Statement

Ded Square and I watched endless clips of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly to inspire our choreography for the video, before coming up with our own creations such as The Sailor-Crab and The Ticking Clock. After shooting had wrapped, the chance discovery of a matching vintage pheasant sweatshirt made me rethink the video's concept. We returned to the pink art deco apartments and our 'Singin' in the Rain' video somehow morphed into something closer to the 90s thriller 'Single White Female'.
